Nestled deep within the heart of the Mississippi Delta, is a small non profit that seeks to encourage the population to embrace healthier eating behaviors and sustainable farming. This organization is a non profit called Mississippi Youth Community Gardens, aka, my-crop.
The Mississippi Youth Community Gardens is a 501(c)(3) in good standing, located within Gunnison, MS, that works to promote healthy eating and sustainable farming to residents of the Mississippi Delta. The Mississippi Youth Community Gardens was founded by Native Mississippian Bobbie Grammer and her Husband, retired Police Officer and Vietnam Veteran Frank Grammar. Mississippi Youth Community Gardens, also known as My-Crop, works to fulfill its mission of promoting healthy eating and sustainable farming by engaging in various community enrichment programs where it participates in hands on training with community members to teach them about the benefits of healthy meals and pot to plate gardening techniques. The Mississippi Delta has an large percentage of people who suffer from diabetes and various health ailments related to poor diet. "Working with the Youth and the local community to promote healthy eating brings my husband and I great joy" says the Founder Bobbie Grammar. "Our organization at this time is primarily funded out of our pockets. However, once we increase our visibility and awareness of our mission with the public, we will be hoping to increase our funding so that we may reach a broader geographic area and increase our program offerings", Founder Bobbie Grammar stated.
The Mississippi Youth Community Gardens operates within a community where the average resident lives below the poverty line without access to proper medical care. Impoverished and very rural, The Mississippi Youth Community Gardens is hoping to eventually expand its program offerings to include job training and computer programming to better equip its residents with the tools they need to rise out of poverty. As much of the poverty within the Gunnison, MS is generational, Founder Bobbie Grammar states she 'welcomes the challenge'. Mrs. Grammer, whose three children are all grown and out of the home, says she 'cares deeply for the community' and is simply looking to 'do her part' in trying to alleviate some of the entrenched issues, such as poor health, facing the community'.
